OMG teh MICROsuX FTL


I should go burn my XP machines because Linux has a flasy 3rd party GUI that MS wouldn't waste its time on, and because Windows 98 crashes a lot.

Seriously, Linux fanboys crack me up.

Ubuntu is a cool OS, and those are some neat effects, but until they make it a lot easier to understand how to install new software I'll stick with XP.

installing programs is easier to do in linux than in windows, i don't have to search for the program and it automatically installs it
